Item number: 18023

The top of this specimen reveals an opening exposed by etching calcite away. The opening is lined with sharp, classic crystals of skutterudite showing typically lop-sided cubes with smaller cube-octahedral crystals of skutterudite on the bigger faces. Really an excellent specimen of this mineral from a classic location! Some tiny arsenopyrite crystals are scattered around. Shows well!
